If you live in the Florida Keys, you know how many amazing recreational opportunities are available. The only real downside is that the abundant sunshine that Florida is known for can lead to premature aging. The good news is that you have quite a few treatment options if you are dealing with signs of aging like lines and wrinkles. Dermal fillers offer significant results with no requirement for downtime, unlike most surgical procedures.
A filler is an injectable substance containing active ingredients like polylactic acid, hyaluronic acid, or calcium hydroxylapatite. No matter what it contains, a filler has the same goal: to fill in lines and wrinkles by increasing facial skin volume.
Restylane® is a popular type of dermal filler containing hyaluronic acid. You may know about hyaluronic acid as a common ingredient in a number of skin care products. It also makes an excellent filler because it is able to attract and bind many times its own weight in water molecules. Restylane® is delivered, as with all fillers, via injection. The product consists of a smoothly flowing gel that works very well with your skin. Once injected, the product immediately begins to attract moisture into skin that is thin and dry. This helps to immediately reverse the process of hyaluronic acid depletion that contributed to the formation of fine lines and wrinkles.
Juvederm® may be the most popular of all dermal fillers right now in the Florida Keys. Like Restylane®, Juvederm® contains hyaluronic acid to attract moisture into your skin cells to fill in lines and wrinkles. It also contains an additional ingredient called lidocaine to ensure patient comfort during the injection process.
Dermal Filler Results
Dermal fillers offer excellent anti-aging results, but they will eventually fade. At some point, you will require additional injections to maintain your results since the product will have been absorbed and fully metabolized by your body.
